Old Fashioned Soft & Buttery Oatmeal Cookies

Good evening,

I have been searching for a good oatmeal cookie recipe for so long! To hard, to crunchy, did not flatten, who knew a cookie would cause so much trouble? These were perfect and took some tweaky but I got it! Do not skip beating the egg and sugar together because it helps them stay light and fluffy!

Ingredients:

1 cup unsalted butter, softened, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1 large egg, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon baking powder, 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars until fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla until well blended. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, baking powder and nutmeg in a bowl. Stir into butter mixture. Gently stir in oats until well blended.
  3. Shape dough into rounded golfball-sized balls (about 2 Tbsp. each). Place on prepared bakingsheet (I fit 9 per sheet). Flatten with the bottom of a measuring cup dipped in sugar.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
